The Pillars of my strength!

Women are emotional beings, well most of us. See what I did there? I started the post so as to warn you in advance that this is going to be an emotional one for me. Well, I consider myself as a strong person but somehow I never shy away from showing my emotions. For me strength and emotions are not mutually exclusive. Recently I got emotional after seeing an Ad on TV by HDFC Life, not that it was my first time getting emotional while watching TV, but I really really loved this particular advertisement.

For the Love of CAR!

I have always had a thing for sedans and SUVs. When I think about my ideal life while daydreaming, besides other things I see a beautiful car. The car of my dreams!  I was lucky enough to see it in a mall in Stockholm, Sweden in 2010.

my-dream-car-porchePorsche is a Porsche and dreams are dreams. In reality we have an Alto 800 that we love but want to replace badly. We have driven it a lot, and due to being driven by 3 different people during any particular week, it is behaving … Read more

Bedtime Rituals – For a good night’s sleep!

Pampers released a new range of diapers called the Pampers Baby Dry Pants and I really liked the concept of the product. Even though I am yet to be a mother, I am helping my sister-in-law with her little baby girl. Both of us play with her through the day and have slowly developed a bedtime ritual for her. There are a few things that I like to do for my niece while my sister-in-law does the rest. Even though it is difficult to put a tiny baby on a schedule, since they are the boss and rule our schedule, … Read more

A Life with No Limitations

There are fewer things in life that get me excited as much as the mention of bucket list. I just turned 30 and since I think I am going to live a long life, I have a long bucket list too. There are a lot of limitations at this point in life in terms of finances and other because of family responsibilities. But mostly I do not let myself dream of things that I know are out of budget and might be in the near future.

Of course sometimes when I am day dreaming, and when my mind forgets to … Read more

My Ideal Valentine!

ASUS Zenfone 5

When you have been with someone for 9 years, married for 5; there is no reason to wonder about who will be your Valentine. But sometimes being with someone for so long can also mean that other things take charge and the love and care sometimes lays suppressed under responsibilities and duties. A day dedicated to love gives us a chance to profess that love for our special someone. But there is still someone who needs your love and there is no special day dedicated to him/her – YOU!

I learnt long ago, through a small sequence in the movie … Read more

ASUS EeeBook X205TA Vs. ASUS All in One PC ET2040 – Go Sleek!

The two duos released by ASUS EeeBook X205TA and ASUS All In One PC ET2040 are awesome in their own space.

Dabur Chyawanprash – An Age Old Way to Boost Metabolism!

Nostalgia can be a boon and a bane. It can bring back painful experiences to the mind and dampen the spirits instantly or it can evoke some pleasant memories and make us yearn to go back and relive some moments. I associate a lot of sweet memories with Chyawanprash!

When I was a little kid, I had a weak immune system. I would fall sick easily especially having the flu. Pills did not exist for everything like they do today and neither was it practical or feasible to visit the doctor for every single little problem. So everyone preferred doing … Read more

In Awe of the Sunset #TeddyTravelogues

Up until the age of 18 I didn’t get to travel a lot. During those days I did not have permission to travel solo, every trip was dependent on the elders of the family. My father was not an ardent traveler so we only made trips for family functions, add to it the fact that 60% of my family stayed in our vicinity, we rarely made long trips. I always prayed for a family function in one of cousins house because she lived in Delhi and it was the farthest we could travel. Once a year we would go to … Read more

45 Hollywood Movies I Should have Watched but Didn’t!

I am not a movie buff. I am more into books and until recently I considered movies to be a waste of time. And my simple criteria for a movie was – it should make me smile/laugh, teach me a lesson or both! So ever since I moved out of the phase of my life where remote control was controlled by others, I never watched anything unless it was a comedy, romantic comedy or animated movie. Forced by some health issues and the resulting alone time, I started watching movies out of my genre recently and felt that I had … Read more
